Exceptional Leadership

As our client feedback will attest to, there is no better team of leaders than those at Australian Walking Holidays. Their expertise & knowledge is matched only by their friendly nature and their desire to impart everything they know about the Australian landscape to you.

Small Groups

We think small is good; it limits the environmental impact and allows you to forge life-long friendships with like-minded travellers. Feedback from our clients attests to the appeal of the small group dynamic – our clients say it's this that makes it special.

Exceptional Value

We aim to include as much as possible in the tour price, so that all you need to think about is being in the moment. We include meals & all park fees on our trips. Our inclusions are displayed against each trip in our brochures, on our website and in our trip notes.

Your Comfort

The best available food, warmth and shelter is standard on our active wilderness holidays, with selected character lodgings as well as quality camp craft and equipment. This ensures that you have the most rewarding and memorable experience.


Sustainable Travel

Sustainable travel is at the core of everything we do, which is why have policies in place to ensure destinations retain their natural character and cultural diversity. Environmental values filter through every aspect of the company, from the minimal impact camping procedures through to the interpretation of environment. The aim is to give you big adventures while we maintain a small footprint!


We start our walks for the year in March. Average temperatures range from 25c in the day time to 11c at night. Newborn seal pups make their debut in the colonies along the coast, platypus sightings are easier to come by and sea winds are calmer.


We do not run our walks in winter as this time of year is generally quite wet and can be unpleasant for walking.


Spring is a lovely time for walking on Kangaroo Island. Temperatures during the day reach up to an average of 23c and night time is around 7c. It’s a wonderful time to see the island’s spectacular array of wildflowers, birds and mammals.


Summer temperatures can be very hot and many of the islands’ animals seek shelter during the heat of the day. We do not offer walks during summer.
